What OS are you using? Is it Windows.
You may have to use the UNC notation (I think its whats its called).

Also an alternative on Windows is to map a drive letter to the network drive.
So you can pickup files from eg H:\MetroFileDrop

The Camel file component uses the API. So basically
whatever this API does/support is what Camel does.
